4 Benefits of a Couples Massage

A couple’s massage is a good way to strengthen the bond between you and your partner. Imagine an hour-long quiet massage with soothing music and a quiet room. You’re side-by-side and both of you are in a relaxed, calm state of mind. A massage invites you to experience the benefits and release a little serotonin (the happy chemical that improves mood) along the way. 

Samuel Figueroa, MD, and Mirka Figueroa, our medical aesthetician, at Dutch Hollow Spa specialize in therapeutic and advanced cosmetic techniques. Our team creates a soothing environment so you can feel relaxed and pampered. Here’s what you can expect from an inclusive spa package.

1. Create Intimacy with Your Partner 

A couple’s massage has a lot of benefits both physically and mentally. When you get a massage, your body releases oxytocin, better known as the ‘cuddle or happy chemical.’ You may feel a sense of increased happiness, calmness, and pleasure. It’s that all-over feel-good feeling many of us crave. 

2. Lower stress and anxiety

Everyday, your body works hard to release tension. Even during a massage, your body attempts to lower stress by releasing serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are so important to your wellbeing. A massage can improve your mood, reduce stress, and encourage a strong bond.

Massages also reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol is the molecule responsible for stress. The experts agree that when your body is relaxed, your mind is relaxed. A regular massage can significantly decrease feelings of stress and anxiety. 

3. Encourage feelings of affection 

You may feel more affection toward one another after a massage. You’re both experiencing a private moment together as you slow down and unwind. A quiet environment allows you to focus on one another as you listen to relaxing music and fully immerse yourself in the experience.

4. Reset your emotions

When your daily life gets busy, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You may even feel a sense of distance between you and your partner. Spending time with one another and during a couples massage hits the reset button. 

Because tension affects your moods, you may have noticed that you have a short temper lately or that you and your partner are getting in more arguments than usual. A couples massage melts away that tension and puts you in a more positive state of mind. You may find that your regular couples massages have a direct link to a healthier, happier relationship.

At Dutch Hollow Medical Spa, we offer full body massages. We encourage you to take advantage of this service to increase the bond between one another and decrease tension and anxiety. Give us a call today to book your first massage.
